We're still collecting donations

On the 25th January 2024 we'd raised £125 with 2 supporters in 28 days. But as every pound matters, we're continuing to collect donations from supporters.

We are thrilled to present Made in Kent Radio, a brand new radio station that launched on August 1st, 2021. Our mission is simple: to be the voice of Kent, providing informative and entertaining content while supporting businesses across the county in the wake of the pandemic.



Made in Kent Radio is a thriving local radio station dedicated to promoting and supporting local businesses, organizations, and communities across the county. For over two years, we have been the voice of Kent, championing the spirit of shopping local and fostering a sense of community pride. Now, we are embarking on an exciting journey to expand our reach and impact. We are seeking your support through crowdfunding to help us bring proper local radio back, extend our services, and inspire positive change in more counties across the UK.

Our Mission:

At Made in Kent Radio, our mission is twofold: to provide a platform that engages and entertains listeners while supporting local businesses, charities, and organizations. We believe in the power of community and aim to create a vibrant network that fosters economic growth, job opportunities, and cultural enrichment.

Our Achievements:

Since the onset of the pandemic, Made in Kent Radio has played a crucial role in supporting over 1,500 local businesses in Kent. Through our promotional efforts, we have helped these businesses thrive during challenging times, boosting their visibility and connecting them with potential customers. However, we aspire to do more.

The Need for Funding:

To expand our impact and reach, we require additional funding to upgrade our infrastructure and transition to DAB radio, a move that will significantly increase our listenership and allow us to support even more businesses, charities, and organizations. Additionally, we aim to invest in new initiatives, such as our free jobs portal, which helps connect job seekers with local opportunities, further contributing to the economic growth of the county.

Expanding Our Mission:

Your generous donations will not only enable us to enhance our offerings in Kent but also support our mission to bring positive change to more counties across the UK. By contributing to our crowdfunding campaign, you become a catalyst for local empowerment and economic revitalization.
